An expert on damages for parties involved in international disputes, Dean John Gotanda recently sat on an arbitration tribunal for a case between a foreign investor and an Asian State. The tribunal was convened by the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA)—the oldest global institution for the settlement of international disputes which administers arbitration and conciliation in matters involving various combinations of states, state entities, intergovernmental organizations and private parties.

Dean Gotanda was joined on the tribunal by Neil Kaplan, one of the world’s most eminent international commercial arbitrators, and Professor Campbell McLachlan of Victoria University of Wellington. The one-week arbitration hearing was held at the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC).
